As some of you may know I posted a thread a while back about getting into some waterfowl photography. Finally found a break in the spring weather to get out and see what its like...I gotta say I'm hooked and can't wait to get more experience shooting birds from the canon!! Heres a few of the better pics i captured, again I am VERY green at this :cheers:

Yes sir! The pic of the flying geese is just north of pikes. Grandparents live on elm. It's pretty hit or miss these days.

What lens do you have?

A couple of simple tips:

Always try to get eye level (or as close to is as you can) with your subject.

And if you want "close up" photos, pretend you're hunting: build a blind, toss out decoys etc. They're just as jumpy in the spring as they are in the fall. I'm convinced the things can smell or have a 6th sense.
